DAN GRAHAM: BEYOND

Photobucket

I recently saw a retrospective of Dan Graham's work at the Walker in Minneapolis and thought I'd share a link to an interesting interview with him by Museo Magazine. In it, he denounces Maurizio Cattelan's work as "90s cynical". An interesting accusation considering his work could certainly be written off as a precious collection of "60s idealism". I happen to identify strongly with both schools of thought.

If you're unfamiliar with Graham's work, there's a short preview of his seminal work, "Rock My Religion" on youtube. The real deal is over an hour long.
